The Sunday R&R

It’s Sunday, we have celebrated Valentine’s Day and today I am taking to day off to go to London with hubby for his birthday!  The day includes visiting a wedding dress boutique for the dresses for #teamamour photo shoot, visiting with an accessories designer and then shopping, lunch and I am sure some bubbles!   Of course the laptop is coming with, I mean what else do you do on a train??

So in last Sunday’s R&R I introduced you to some of the wonderful new FWS Sponsors, be sure to check them out and I have more great suppliers to introduce you to today.

A beautiful new wedding venue to introduce you to Chateau de Fayolle. A beautiful and ancient wedding chateau in Aquitaine in South West France, with their own chapel on the grounds where you can get married. With accommodation for 20 adults plus some children at the chateau and with Hotels and B&B establishments within 10 minutes, the chateau can cater for up to 100 people.

Looking for a different way to capture your wedding? Then I am delighted to our next sponsor Créa Mémoires who offer a different approach to filming your wedding, letting those who know you best capture every moment of your special day. Crea Memoires give your friends the latest professional cameras, some easy online training and let them film your day from start to finish.

But as always back to the Sunday R&R and we started the week with a complete rustic high with Beth and Tim’s real wedding, which struck a chord with me as soon as I started reading as they got engaged in Rome just like we did many moons ago.  Read their full rustic real wedding here.
